a video screening room hidden under an oversized dining room table

Underneath the table is a hidden screening room where you can watch entertaining home videos of children eating.

Joe Yorty and John Brady have created a playfully large dining table covered by a custom-designed tablecloth. Underneath the table is a hidden screening room where you can watch entertaining home videos of children eating. The projected videos have been sourced from popular Internet sharing sites, such as YouTube, as well as from Museum visitors.

  • Watch humorous videos of children eating. What foods are being eaten in the videos?
  • See if you recognize anyone in the videos. Who makes the biggest mess?
  • Upload a photograph or video of your children eating to add to the image collection here.

Who Made This?

Joe Yorty and John Brady are San Diego-based artists who share a fascination for thrift stores and incorporate second-hand objects in their artwork as a means of capturing a collective portrait of the American family. Joe and John take advantage of how objects found in second-hand stores trigger personal memories of similar objects from one’s own past. The artists emphasize how these objects translate into a larger collective memory of home and domestic space.
